I've noticed a number of posters over the last few weeks that all follow a similar pattern but I can't figure out what the point is. They have characteristics similar to spambots but no embedded links etc. Characteristics include:
1) New member
2) Makes 3 or so posts
3) Posts are vaguely on point but actually not
4) no embedded links.
Latest example is @aniamonotgomry but there's several others (Check out his posts).
Just vaguely curious

Maybe someone in the admin found the tick box that stops new members from embedding links. It's been a standard anti-spam feature in most forum software for years.

That makes a lot of sense.

Wishful thinking by me perhaps as the amount of anti-spam features on modern forums is rather extensive and not allowing links for the first couple of posts or so is just one of them. I have noticed many nonsensical posts and I think the user is just testing the waters before posting links.
